Relationships, psychology, theology, motivation, technology, philosophy


A brief speech dealing with the definition of Philosophy, its founders and greatest teachers throughout the ages, common fallacies of logic, and how a study of timeless questions can benefit anyone today.

A brief talk on what the Digital Divide is, it's history in this country, comparisons to other nations, and effective/ ineffective means of closing that gap.

A brief talk on how to climb out of self-doubt, low self-esteem and needy/clingy behavior. A discussion from a psychological perspective on the causes of said behavior, how to recognize it, and how to rise above it.



Cultural & Education

Despite claims and funding to the contrary, children in Chicago are not being taught what we call emociofinancial© literacy and intelligence. Therefore, there is no new generational wealth being created for the future. There are no real, measurable, tangible efforts to raise emociofinancial© literacy and intelligence for young people in urban centers.
